What got you into cosplay?
I had always loved the idea of it, but just never did. I attended a con in 2006 and decided I would return the next year in costume
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Zabuza from Naruto. All my friends loved Naruto and were doing a big group, and I chose Zabuza just cuz he's friggin awesome :)
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite costume is my Ike--Vanguard Class from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It is not wholly complete yet, I am missing a couple pieces of armor--will be finished shortly
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
I plan on doing a wholly armored Wargreymon, with a voice box and glowing eyes :)
What has been your most memorable cosplay experience?
I was cosplaying as Cloud Strife and participating in a Battle Cosplay event. I coulda swore I had checked how much room I had to swing the buster sword, but I ended up knocking part of the stage down xp
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
So far, my only award has been a 2nd place award for my Ike--Vanguard Class costume.
Tell us a little about yourself
I live with my wifey, cosplaying and playing video games when I can in between a full-time job and full-time school. I've loved anime since I first saw it (a saturday morning on Fox Kids with Digimon and Escaflowne), and have been a gamer since I first played Yoshi's Island
My favorite anime
Cowboy Bebop (best anime ever) plenty of others--Rurouni Kenshin, Outlaw Star, Deathnote, Escaflowne, Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, too many to name....
My favorite game(s)
Final Fantasy series, Fire Emblem Series, Disgaea Series, Resistance series, Mortal Kombat, too many to name...
My favorite book(s)
Sadly, i don't read as much manga as i'd like (it's too expensive). i reeeeaaallyyy wanna finish P.H.D Phantasy Degree and Fairy Tale. i also read some non-japanese stuff, mainly James Rollins books. I do like some classics, such as The Divine Comedy.
My favorite character(s)
Spike Spiegal, Gene Starwind, Dr. Stein, Cloud Strife, Karsh, Snow Villiers, Jecht, Sol Badguy, way too many to count...oh, and of course--WE LIKE IKE
My favorite movies(s)
Depends on the genre, really. I love Battle Royale, Suicide Club, 2LDK, Cowboy Bebop, Escaflowne, Silent Hill, Thank You For Smoking, and once again, far too many to count....
My favorite actors/actresses
Brad Pitt (the man can play ANY freakin role), Harrison Ford, Milla Jovovich, Natalie Portman, Laura Bailey, Wendy Lee, and Steve Blum. For the most part, I don't pay too much attention to the actors--I just enjoy their roles
